You Missed It, Redux.

It's been a busy weekend, what with Buffalo Bill Days, the Edgewater Children's Fair, the Denver County Fair (Denver's first one, if you can imagine) and the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival. Guess which one I went to...

And seriously, I know you didn't miss the second time I've danced this year, cause you were there partaking in the awesome.

"Only Imperial stormtroopers are so precise."

Mostly with their book suggestions, if you remember the movies, they totally missed. Every shot. I'm pretty sure the Ewoks had better aim.

And why were they suggesting books? For a book signing by one Timothy Zahn.

A great writer who's written some of my favorite Star Wars related books. So go out, pick up some good books, or you know, the stormtroopers will get you.

Bicycles and Movies and Lions, Oh My!

It's been a lazy but fidigty last few days, and what happens when you get fidigty? A Day Out and about! I found this lion before taking in a film,

and then I found this after said film.

Look! It's bicycles and a movie at Civic Center Park. Turns out they've been doing this most of the summer, you bike in, catch a movie, get food from a truck, etc.

Tonight's movie was the Social Network. I've seen it, and I did think it was good, but for one thing I'm not sure I would find it appropriate for a movie in the park, and for another, it isn't a movie that I can come in half way and feel like I really need to watch it. Those movies that fit that bill include Robocop, The Iron Giant, and Ferris Bueller's Day off to name a few. I need to look up and see if they will be doing this for the remainder of the summer because I think I will try and catch the next one, even if I don't have a bike, but you know I love movies and food from trucks.

Oh, and for those of you wondering, said film which was not said was Trigun: Badlands Rumble at the ever rockin Denver Film Center Colfax. As always, a great time was had by all.

Film, Fashion, and Rock and Roll!

Once again, it's been a busy weekend. First thing, I was once again at the Denver Film Center Colfax, this time for the Cinema Q Film Festival. From the Film Society's own description "Cinema Q presents the best of the best in film that covers every aspect of the LGBTQ community and introduces new visionaries, pays tribute to iconic staples, tells stories from around the world and connects us all with a common message of identity and understanding." Among the great films was an open panel discussion with the filmakers of the the documentary Photos of Angie, an extremely powerful film. The festival itself was a reminder that at the end of the day, all we are is human. An extremely useful message I think we all need to remember far too often.

Next up was the Rock West, a concert and fundraiser for the Foothills Art Center, featuring the fashionable stylings of Rockmount Ranchwear. These shots are just from the gift shop, but really the exhibit is something you need to see for yourself, and I'm not going to cheat you of the experience.

But just to whet your whistle about all the goings on, The Moderators (a great band made up of presidents and CEO's) rocked the gallery, Peacemaker Whiskey loaded up their six shooters (you just have to see them to believe them) and of course the star of the show: Rockmount Ranchwear, with fashion and stylings from their very beginnings to custom designs by the likes of Paul McCartney. Really astounding and you definitely need to stop in.

Here Comes The Rain Again

Falling on my head like a memory, falling on my head like a new emotion. Okay, not really, but who can say no to the Eurythmics? Regardless, we all know there is some debate on the brightness of my particular crayon, and with the odd rain schedule hitting over the weekend and my resultant actions in said monsoon, I think the debate will continue.

Lightning Crashes!
In all honesty, I knew full well that climbing on top of that wall, laden with metal poles was a bad idea, but if you aren't living on the edge, you're just taking up space.

When was the last time you went puddle jumping? Sorry about the intimate close up of my size 11 wafflestompers, but sometimes you just gotta go for it.

And for those keeping track, I'm still casting shadows.

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July! If yours was anything like mine, it was long, busy, but fun. That being said, less talk, more pictures, from the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Denver's Independence Eve with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, and wrapping up with the City of Golden's fireworks display, which turns out, I was a little closer than expected to the launch point. Enjoy while I dust the ash out of my hair.
